Concerned about Coronavirus?

There are simple, effective things we can all do to reduce our risk of catching Coronavirus or transmitting the virus to other people. Our main site has information on what you can do to protect yourself and others.

 
Important information from GOV.UK please share this link and support those who may need help to register:
 
 
Get coronavirus support as an extremely vulnerable person. Register if you have a medical condition that makes you extremely vulnerable to the coronavirus. For example you'll be able to ask for help getting deliveries of essential supplies like food.
 
If you're not sure whether your medical condition makes you extremely vulnerable register anyway. 
 
You can register yourself, or for someone else. 
 

Age UK East Sussex (# Proud to be AUKES!) Coronavirus Emergency Appeal

At this time, we are asking for financial support to maintain our vital services and to ensure that all donations are prioritised to those who are most in need.

Donate today and help older people in East Sussex!

Age UK East Sussex is reviewing the latest advice from Public Health England regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) to make sure that we are giving the best advice and support to older people in East Sussex, our staff and volunteers. AUKES is dedicated to helping older people in the East Sussex area. We are an independent charity, responsible for raising our own funds, your continued support and donations during these difficult times are helping us to keep vulnerable people safe and well.

We are following government advice and have closed all of our shops at this time. Our amazing team are working hard in the background to ensure that we carry on delivering our frontline services. We are working hard to ensure that we minimise any risk of the Coronavirus to our clients and vulnerable older people who we support. While we continue to maintain our vital services and we are adapting other services to ensure that we continue to help the most in need. Whilst older people are at increased risk of loneliness and isolation at this time; our biggest challenge is undoubtedly supporting the most vulnerable to stay safe and healthy at home.

We have had overwhelming offers from people and organisations who would like to support our work as volunteers. At this time, we are considering the best way to respond to ensure that the people who need help the most receive it. We are working with a number of other charities and organisations as to how we can best utilise our resources collectively.

At this time, we are asking for financial support to maintain our vital services and to ensure that all donations are prioritised to those who are most in need. You can also become a Neighbourly Volunteer, please see our website and Facebook page for further information.
Thank you for your support - # Proud to be AUKES!
